Stevenson Calls for Nominations for Local Football Heroes

Stewart Stevenson, MSP for Banffshire & Buchan Coast, has called on constituents to nominate their local footballing heroes, as part of the Scottish FA Community Awards 2014.

The awards recognise volunteers and clubs who have made a difference to grassroots football in their local community. Nominations for the regional awards close on 26 May 2014 and those for the national awards close on 22 June 2014.

Mr Stevenson commented:

“Those involved in grassroots football commit a great deal of their time not for the awards or financial rewards but in order to ensure that children and adults alike have fun and are able to develop their football skills.

“Standing at the side of a football pitch on a dark, wet evening will not appeal to many people but that is what many people are doing right across Banffshire & Buchan Coast.

“Those that go the extra mile to help ensure our youngsters enjoy their free time whilst pursuing a healthy activity should be applauded, and I would urge anyone who has someone in mind for an award to nominate them.”

Awards are available in the following categories:

  • Volunteer of the Year in Youth Football
  • Volunteer of the Year in School Football
  • Volunteer of the Year in Adult Football
  • Volunteer of the Year in Disability Football
  • Volunteer of the Year in Girls’/Womens’ Football
  • Best Professional Club in the Community
  • Community Football Club of the Year
  • McDonald’s Community Champion of the Year
  • Coach of the Year
  • Merit Award for Services to Football (People’s Award)
